NanoSteel Presentation at PowderMet 2010 to Highlight How Bulk Materials Nanotechnology Can be Applied in Mainstream Industries

Jun 24, 2010, 15:00 ET from The NanoSteel Company

PROVIDENCE, R.I., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The NanoSteel® Company, a leader in nanostructured steel alloy surface technologies, announces that a presentation highlighting how bulk materials nanotechnology can be applied as a surface technology for solving complex challenges in mainstream industries will be delivered by Daniel Branagan Ph.D., NanoSteel's chief technical officer, at the 2010 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials (PowderMet 2010) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, June 27-30.

Branagan will present "Bulk Materials NanoTechnology" during the Advances in Nanoparticle Science & Technology, Part 3: Nanostructured Coatings session at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 29. The presentation will cover NanoSteel's technology progression from very thin physical vapor deposition coatings to thin thermal spray coatings and finally to thick weld overlays for hardfacing and wear plate. Branagan will also place emphasis on linking key mechanisms to their enabling nanoscale structures which result in the development of commercially exploitable properties including a revolutionary high hardness/toughness combination resulting in exceptional performance characteristics such as high resistance to corrosion, erosion and wear.

NanoSteel's patented Super Hard Steel® alloys for thermal spray coating and weld overlay for hardfacing and wear plate applications are examples of bulk materials nanotechnology applied to successful commercial products used in mainstream industries.
